For the past few months I have been hearing about software technology that Toshiba claims will take an ordinary DVD and upscale it to the exact standards of a Blu-ray disc. Now what I just posted above is basically the way it was described to me. My first thoughts were that with the limited bandwidth of a standard DVD there is no way you can upscale it to the point where you will get the sharpness, film-like quality and (most important) color depth that you get with Blu-ray. Well, today one of our readers sent me this article which pretty much resurfaces the rumor that Toshiba is introducing a "Blu-ray killer." Here's a bit of the article.... My thoughts are this.... If Toshiba can do the seemingly impossible and come out with a cheap player whose software can upconvert a standard DVD to the precise picture quality of a Blu-ray disc, then I can see this possibly being a "Blu-ray" killer......except for one important issue.... The one thing this article doesn't talk about is audio specs. Is this hardware going to provide the type of lossless audio found on Blu-ray discs? Not from a standard DVD it won't! Will this matter to a general public who seem to prefer MP3 downloads over CD quality? Perhaps not. This is something we will be keeping a close eye on.
